The eco-friendly alternative to balloon releases. Remember loved ones, celebrate a special day or special cause, in a memorable, beautiful and earth-kind way!
Sadly, instead of going up to heaven, all balloons come back to earth as litter, harming our environment and wildlife.
Helium is a material with finite supply on Earth - our bubbles don't waste it!
This kit is sustainably-made (made in Europe? from sustainable wood and unbleached fairtrade cotton) and used again and again (unlike one-time-only balloons)!
And our non-toxic bubble mix is biodegradable and in concentrated form (to avoid shipping water around)!
If you'd like us to send DPD to collect this kit from you when you're done, you can order that here.
What it contains:
- 1 litre of 5x concentrate (makes 5 litres of bubble mix);
- 3 wand-and-rope sets sized for kids to use (1 with giant bubble rope, 2 with mini multi bubble ropes for making streams of multi-coloured bubbles); and
- 2 wand-and-rope sets sized for adults to use (1 with giant bubble rope, 1 with multi bubble rope for streams of football-sized bubbles).
